Admissions & Enrollment
The admissions process begins with understanding this is a private, Christian school. We do ask that you prayerfully consider your school choice. The process begins by filling out an application either online or at the school office. You will speak with admissions to fill out the required paperwork and submit the required documents. The application fee is $50 per family (waived now through May 31). For more information or if you have questions, please contact us.
Costs and Scholarships
While there is a tuition (please contact the school for up-to-date costs for tuition), we want to make sure you have every opportunity to attend Red Sands Christian School. Therefore, we help you with filling out scholarship applications and arranging payment plans to cover fees and remaining tuition. 100% of our students receive some scholarship money each year if enrolled at the beginning of the school year. We also allow parents to work at the school to help pay off balances on their account!
Students must have been attending regularly in a public, private or home-school (unless entering Kindergarten) before coming to Red Sands Christian School. We will need birth certificates, proof of guardianship (if not the parent), and shot records that are up-to-date. We will also request any IEP records to be disclosed upon enrollment. Additional requirements may be needed depending on unique circumstances or for some scholarships.
What to Expect
Several things will be different coming from other schools:
We worship every morning (parents welcome to stay)
Hands-on and creative classroom experiences
Non-traditional testing at times (allows for anxiety to be removed)
Archery (4th grade and up)
Bible and prayer taught and practiced in the classroom
Loving and welcoming staff
Discipline that fits the situation (encouraging prayer and forgiveness)
At the beginning of the school year, each parent will have access to the portal for their student(s). Grades, progress, communication and even attendance can be seen via the portal access. We want parents to be actively involved in their child's education.
We encourage our students (and families) to begin practicing what is being learned. The school wants to begin to raise students and families that:
Attend church regularly together
Serve the community in which they live
Practice love, forgiveness and grace to everyone they encounter
Share the good news of Jesus Christ with those who have never heard
We also have a serving requirement each year for all students.
